    Well done, Gill & Quinno. Just five for me, unfortunately.

    The Harp is possible the oddest choice in this list. It is a lot of things, but not in anyone's imagination a community local. Another of those cases where a large ale range overrides all other considerations in the eyes of the local CAMRA branch.

    It means local as in 'local to within their branch' eg the branch pub of the year; not whether the pub is full of locals!
